What to Bring to Your Exam

For exam security and integrity purposes you are only allowed to bring the following references into the exam environment.

  • Uniform Plumbing Code - Candidates can bring in an original copy of the Uniform Plumbing Code for use on the exam. However, it must meet all of the following criteria.
    • It must be an original copy in its original binding, meaning it cannot be a photocopied version of the code.
    • The version of the code book (2012 or 2018) must match the code year the exam you are scheduled to take is based on. You cannot use the 2012 UPC on the 2018 exam and vice versa. If there is a mismatch between the code and the exam year, candidates will not be allowed to take the exam.
    • No loose papers or notes are allowed to be inserted or written into the code book. Any of these items found before the exam begins will be required to be removed from the testing environment. Any of these items found during the exam will result in the exam being immediately terminated and the violating candidate will be reported to the Plumbing Board.
  • Montana Amendments - Candidates are allowed to bring in and use a copy of the Montana amendments to the Uniform Plumbing Code. A copy of these amendments can be downloaded. The amendments used on the exam must meet the following criteria.
    • The version of the amendments (2012 or 2018) must match the code year the exam you are scheduled to take is based on. You cannot use the 2012 amendments on the 2018 exam and vice versa. If there is a mismatch between the amendments and the exam year, candidates will not be allowed to take the exam.
    • No loose papers or notes are allowed to be inserted or written into the amendments. Any of these items found before the exam begins will be required to be removed from the testing environment. Any of these items found during the exam will result in the exam being immediately terminated and the violating candidate will be reported to the Plumbing Board.
